Still working on sculpted prims, I'm trying to make the impressive Darksaber as shown in the Clone Wars animated series. The hilt itself isn't impressive (even less since it's shown in the dark), but the blade and the sounds are original.
I took profit of this to try some ideas I had to improve a ligthsaber blade in general. Unfortunately it works best only for black cores. For now:
- It uses LCK Twin Turbo as base
- The blade and the glow are a single prim which works even at low graphic preferences as it doesn't really use the SL glow.
- The blade is flat and not circular like on regular sabres'.
- currently, the sound are missing (it's the regular sabre sound set), I hope to be able to work out this.
